Just three days into the New Year and I'm in the kitchen baking cupcakes! This time, I'm using some super cute liners that I was given by Shannon Harvey, owner of Sweets & Treats Boutique to test out!
Sweets & Treats makes greaseproof liners that are supposed to stand up to the discoloration that often happens when baking cupcakes, especially chocolate and other dark colored cake. Shannon sent me 4 sleeves of liners in all kinds of patterns and colors.
For these cupcakes, I chose the solid green liners to bring out the mint aspect of the cupcake. Since I was baking chocolate cupcakes, I wasn’t too sure how much color these liners would hold… but, I was happily surprised! They held their color really well and stuck to the cupcake nicely! Especially with this dark cake, I was happy that I could still see a lot of green in these liners! I would definitely use them again! Thanks Shannon for sending them to me!
With these liners, I made my first cupcake of 2013! I made a Mint Chocolate Frango Cupcake and the recipe can be found on my blog, JavaCupcake.com!
